    Arrow Legends disbanded Ian clueless about issue...

    Trinidad Guardian
    12th May 2004
    By Essiba Small

    Five-time Band of the Year champion, Legends, is no more. Yesterday, Legends bandleader Mike Antoine announced the birth of Legacy, a band he will lead without former Legends partner Ian McKenzie.

    Antoine made the announcement yesterday at the National Library in Port-of-Spain, and insisted that the change was a natural progression.

    “When you are a part of a family, you grow up, become a big man and move out with your own family,” he said.

    “This is what this is.”

    Antoine was quick to dismiss the notion that war had developed between himself and McKenzie, who was notably absent, over a controversial section in their 2004 presentation Freedom.

    The section, which featured masqueraders, including McKenzie’s wife, wearing pasties on their breasts, sparked angry reviews from members of the public.

    The furore over it forced Antoine to make a public apology.

    In an interview with the Guardian after the heavy public criticism, Antoine vehemently denied he had anything to do with the nudity.

    “I want to assure the public that the next time they see Legends, there won’t be that problem,” he had said.

    “I will do something to get them out.”

    Yesterday, Antoine said he and McKenzie remained friends and that he would help him if he ever thought of bringing out his own band.

    “I mean, we spoke up to last night,” Antoine said.

    “I am the godfather of his child.”

    Asked why McKenzie was not at the news conference, he said: “Because he probably didn’t want to be.”

    However, when asked to comment yesterday, McKenzie expressed surprise that his former partner had launched a new band.

    “Oh, is that so?” he asked.

    “Well, I didn’t know anything about that.”

    He also denied that he had spoken to Antoine, but said he wished him well.

    “People does get married and get divorced, so that’s life,” McKenzie said.

    “I would be having my own press conference soon to let people know what I am doing for 2005, because you just giving me the news.”

    The 2005 launching of Legacy is set for October 16. It will feature 18 sections with all-inclusive sections and mobile rest rooms.

    Antoine said costumes would be designed for the young, old and even children.

    Legacy also intends to retain brass band Triple X, Sound FX, DJ Laloo and Franco, along with its kings and queens.

    The band is also looking for a new location for its mas camp.
